  • Port origin and destination
  • Etc.





QoE Masurements

Benefit of having all the insights about the network and applications performance.

Click here to see the difference betweek QoE and QoS.

Viewtimon wire data QoE probe brings by default a rich set of Quality of Experience metrics such as:

  • Round Trip Time
  • End-to-End Latency
  • HTTP Session Time (TTL)
  • HTTP Setup Time

DPI - Application Recognition

Since most of the applications are encrypted, Deep Packet Inspection is crucial for detecting them.

In fact, Viewtimon brings the latest DPI technology for application recognition. It brings a rich set of robust and updated signatures. These are based on all the different atributes: ports, static IPs, dynamic IPs with DNS requests, traffic paterns, bytes sequences, metrics, etc.

Furthermore, you can also add your organization applications by manualy adding customized signatures.




Real-Time Wire Data Analytics and Historical View with Viewtisight

It is not only about having precise metada of the network traffic. Moreover, it is also very important how to visualize and analyse it.

Viewtimon  sends all the traffic to Viewtisight. This advanced analytics tool will provide real-time interactive dashboards in adition to many other functionalities:

  • Static and dynamic alarms (with anomaly detection)
  • High retention rate
  • Multitenancy
  • Drill-Down
  • Vast amount of reports types and customizable dashboards
  • Correlation with other data sources (with Viewtilog), like SNMP, Netflow, Syslog, CDRs, etc.
  • Etc.







Create network diagrams.

With autodiscovery mode, automatically build the diagram, painting every node that has coursed traffic. Select the relevant KPI to show its weight with different colours of the lines.

You can also manually add the desired nodes to monitor specific transactions.







Path Analysis with NAT

Traffic Deduplication. KPIs are calculated without counting twice the same packet.

Path identification even after NAT. Viewtimon uses machine learning algorithms to identify packets of the same flow, even if they have been nated.

Thanks to this, Viewtimon is able to get end to end quality of experience indicators and any other key quality indicator.

Traffic Captures Always On

Keep calm. Viewtimon sniffer is capturing the traffic 7 days a week, 24 hours per day.

In fact, you don't need to manually activate the captures. Surely, Viewtimon will store any incident in your network.

Generate PCAP within the desired day and time range.




Control Packet Truncation: High Retention Rate

One of the limitations of traffic sniffers is the amount of time that the captures are accesible.

Viewtimon Sniffers brings the capability of truncating the payload of specific traffic, like HTTPS. In fact, this is typically a high percentage of the overall traffic. Consequently, it will singificantly reduce the disc space improving the retention rate.

Because of this, when opening the PCAP in Wireshark it will automatically fill the size of the packet with the information contained in the header. As a result, no relevant info will be lost.

Easy Interface with Capture Dashboard

In order to download the PCAP, Viewtisight has a predefined dynamic dashboard, where you can easily select the start and end date and time.

You can select if you want the capture for IP conversations or IP ranges. The destination IP and port can be set as "any". Additioinaly you can input the desired value.

The PCAP will then be generated and available for download. In adition, you get a first input of the capture, with some reports showing relevant KPIs.








Easy Deployment

Viewtimon and Viewtimon sniffer are deployed out of band. Evidently, there is a need to replicate the traffic and forward it towards the probe. This can be done with a tap, a network packet broker, or a port spam.

If there are traffic aggregations with duplicated traffic, don’t worry. Viewtimon and Viewtimon Sniffer will handle this, providing the correct measures and captures.

Again, every Viewtimon deployment includes the Viewtisight smart anlytics tool to handle all the data.








Virtual Installation or with Viewtinet Appliances

Viewtimon wire data QoE probe can be deployed in virtual mode (both in private or public cloud). However, Viewtimon Sniffer requires high-demanding hardware needs. For this reason we recomend its deployment with a dedicated Viewtinet appliance.

Viewtimon appliances can manage from 200Mbps for remote sites, up to 100Gbps in a single unit. The deployment is all-in-one. Therefore, Viewtimon and Viewtisight can run together within the same appliance.
